Kokomo, Indiana Logo Design

Nearly every new Kokomo organization knows they are in need of a logo, yet few entrepreneurs thoroughly understand the vital role their business logo will perform in their financial success, or the reason that one logo works far better than another. A business logo has an immediate and sustaining effect on the prosperity of a business, go with the right one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, choose the wrong one and it can be a barrier and a hindrance for the longevity of a company.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and coffeehouse were actually launching in an old section of the town and really wanted to cast a vintage tone without coming across as boring or low energy. I fulfilled the two tasks via creating a logo concept that incorporates a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a timeless business image.

medical logo design with a microscopic lense slide as well as germs made for Kokomo, Indiana clinical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which investigates the triggers and effects of diseases, especially the field of medicine that deals with the laboratory examination of samplings of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

The Mid-Valley Pathology brand I came up with is really the sole instance I recall in which I was able to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide right into a logo design.

Typically I attempt not to be overly literal with a concept and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it represents quite literally, yet it does it in a way that integrates the slide as part of the name so it doesn’t serve so much as a description of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancer to the name that helps make it more interesting, more attention grabbing and more unforgettable.

logo layout with a jumping eco-friendly frog made for a family members enjoyable facility in Kokomo, Indiana.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very fun project to work on, probably because a trampoline park is all about fun. It’s additionally a project that is way out of the usual of the sorts of projects which come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for medical professionals, dental offices, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that I have actually ever gotten the opportunity to work on.

Given that the title of the company features the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to include a few springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring doesn’t really reflect an environment of fun does it. My thought process on this project went from springs (boring) to what jumps around, kangaroos … but kangaroos are cute and this place is cool, in the end I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to give the logo a more enthusiastic high energy atmosphere.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my concept and named the frog Jax and integrated him in to everything they utilized for marketing and advertising. I also believe this is the only time that a logo I came up with was transformed into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fabricated to look just like my frog design.

photography logo including a flock of birds, a mountain, a route, a stream, as well as a tree - created for Kokomo, Indiana travel professional photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo project I took on for a travel photographer, which is a fairly specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche speciality due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to shoot places or things but rather convey emotional experiences through the pictures they capture. The idea behind this logo composition was to use negative space to project more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is representative of the majority of professional photographers in that they often share whole stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey significantly more than that because their photos often have an emotional fullness that can’t be revealed with mere words. I attempted to do something very similar to this logo by using the positive space in the design to say one thing and then at the same time using the negative space to expand upon what was conveyed through the first impression. I think, in hindsight, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Kokomo logo but also to illustrate the depth of her work and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Kokomo logo layout with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail business.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of logo design jobs that I take on I honestly relish and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I really felt good about, but the customer didn’t quite share my enthusiasm for it. I felt really good about the idea of using the seagull form as a stroke in the letter A however the customer, while he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This man genuinely hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his friends and family did not share his contempt for this particular variety of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I urge all of them to share it with friends and colleagues and family as well as with other people that they don’t even know so as to get unbiased assessments on the value of a concept. Fortunately, he talked about it with his family members and they adored the concept and were able to persuade him and get him to sign off on it, but not before he worked me over to include every other seabird he could think of … eventually I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Custom logo designs are a strange creature in the design world given that the people that tend to hire an expert to create their logo comprehend how essential a logo is for their business so they are way more vested in the result. Every logo job has it’s share of difficulties, however the largest obstacle is finding that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the job it’s needed to do in branding a company and also providing the customer the image they see for themselves.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go yet it looks like that in many instances 1 of the things consumers usually tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest new venture commuter/shuttle airline located in LA and while I’m not certain it actually “took off” their logo didn’t ground them.

Logo created for an orthodontist in Kokomo, Indiana, design consist of an arc with lines converging via it to indicate steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logos can be one of the most challenging logo jobs because it appears that almost every dentist integrates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logo designs are one of the most cliche ridden fields when it comes to company branding, if restaurants approached their advertising in the exact same way dental offices do every one of their logo designs would be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would probably include an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind adding an image of something mouth associated to a dentist’s logo design but it has to be performed subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dental professionals logo that litter the branding landscape of the dentistry profession.

I actually love doing dentist business logos simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a certain area of the field of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the clichéd approach that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics delivered such an opportunity and ultimately I created a concept that does not have a solitary smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t overt, they are still implied in the design. When I turned this particular design over to the client the only smile that was obvious was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design made for a family not-for-profit, the logo features 4 personalities startled in elevation to stand for a family unit with in the layout.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation reached out to ImageCo to help them come up with a custom logo design that would be illustrative of the devotion that William McNally had for the people residing in his community. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain images of a happy family, a cliche heavy method to any logo design is to be far too literal about what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered that the best concepts are the ones that are downplayed and never hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution wants to communicate.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a distinct opportunity to do a custom logo design that communicated that they were about families without being overtly tacky about it. The aim of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo to describe how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If people have to consider a logo to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be immediately comprehended and a logo that illustrates itself will never have the opportunity to be understood.

Logo style produced for a hair style studio including a manuscript font a hummingbird as well as an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a logo which conveyed a feeling of serenity and connection for their new hair studio. I created a design that did not go the obvious path of making just a stylized orchid but alternatively created a logo that implied a flower in the formation of a swirl blended into the letter O in the title and by placing emphasis on the concept along with the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering over the logo itself. The obvious path in creating a logo is in most cases the incorrect direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately laid the attention on the emotion that they really wanted to forecast to their patrons.

The kernel unites the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that functions as a connection between the software and computer hardware.

The business logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is situated a number of miles from the offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to describe anything to anyone regarding to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. Nevertheless it symbolized something to the owner of the company and in many cases the meaning supporting a logo design is just as important as how it serves the company it represents.

I designed their Kokomo business logo dsign along with an illustration which garners the interest of traffic and projects an image that evokes the enthusiasm of the outdoors.

Thankfully, in this particular instance, I hit a bullseye with the 1st try.

Brewgrrs was a cool project in which I worked closely with the owner to develop a business logo that worked very well and did a fantastic job to brand them, it worked on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the illuminated sign that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
